bought another truck!

well, some of you remember the bagged 93 ranger I bought a few weeks ago. Well, it wasnt really 'me'. It was fun but it needed work and I had no motivation to start on it. So, I sold it. lol (starting to feel like sonic04edge lol)


So, one of my friends was selling this thing and I decided to buy it. I got a great deal on it since we are friends. I put in some time on it too so I already knew the truck. I picked it up tuesday and havent touch my ranger since! I love it.


specs:
1991 F350 crew cab dually
7.3 non turbo
2wd auto
129k on it

I love it. It acutally will come in good use later on when my dad starts taking some of his cars to carshows. As far as plans. well Im putting a radio and speakers because the ones in it suck. Also, ditching the purple gangster tint.

anyways, here is the only pic I have of it.

yup. the 7.3 is very loud. haha.

the interior is very clean, but the exterior.. well the pic hides alot of the issues with the paint, but at least the body is straight.

they are building one on trucks right now. 78-79 crew dually. they painted it two tone blue and silver.

you should upgrade that front end to the prettier 92-96 front end.

i know its 20 years old but age has nothing to do with the condition of the paint...hell my moms 94 saturn looks like it did when we bought in in 94...because we took care of it

LOL. Yeah. The interior is pretty dated but I like it better than the bland 92-97's (imo). The worst thing about it is the wipers. They only have 2 speeds, so when its misting its kinda a pita
